If you haven't looked at it lately, Swede's Facebook page has a wonderful scanned article from about 1979 about Aero Air and Commander... well worth a look.

Is Swede still alive?
Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

Sadly, no. Died in bed at 92 (I think?) about 10 years ago. His grandchildren maintain that facebook page.

Any 980's keep the original "COMMANDER JETPROP" on the engine?
I haven't seen one in a long time.  I know we did away with ours on the 2nd or 3rd paint job.

I don't know about 980s, but I have definitely seen it on Jetprops. In fact, when I do my repaint, I'd like to put it back on.

Bruce, is that a sticker or is there a template for that lettering? I also want to do the correct "980" on the wingtips, or at least something similar.

Its a sticker that we re-created.  They looked nice to me - still looking for the pic. If you would like to acquire some, Id call Cameron in parts: 309-697-6300

When I get around to painting my 980 (maybe later this year), I will follow up with you. I'd like to have the stickers-- I think they look good as well.
